It is hard to believe that it was only seven years ago I witnessed a CNC router in action for the very first time. I was fascinated and simply had to have one! Although I had been in the creative end of the three dimensional sign business for most of my life I didn't really know what I would do with one - but I just knew it could do fantastic stuff.

Through extensive research I quickly found out that with the relative simplicity of EnRoute, CNC routers were capable of just about anything imaginable. This journal will chronicle that journey to date and continue each week with two or three entries as we continue to explore just what is possible with this wonderful software... -dan

One more piece of the puzzle put into place

Yesterday was a big day. The heavy dimensional sign was to be lifted into place on the gable end of the Fox and Hounds Pub. It was heavy and awkward to handle but I had the help of the contractor on the project. He had a lift set up when I arrived. We carefully measured the sign, the crew fastened the backing into place on the wall and the sign was lifted into place. It went quickly for this crew knew what they were doing.

The dimensional sign added a splash of color to the building, even on the dreary, rainy day we were suffering. The outside is looking much more complete at last.

The hours sign still remains to be installed in the circle opening in the brick wall. An address board will also be installed over the doorway. With our new router installed this work is the next on the agenda.
